Wow, that's a lot of partition icons.

I've managed to get the drive-icons-by-wbar scheme from BoxPup going on Quirky Unicorn 6.21:

Hi BarryK,

Also included with unicornpup is a blue unicorn background.

As I like your icons I used mtpaint to make "my" unicorn yellow - as in the screen shot.

My regards

@BarryK:

Whilst rummaging around in the pup_event scripts of Quirky Unicorn 6.21, I've discovered that, in /usr/local/pup_event/frontend_funcs there are two functions both identically named free_coord().

The inclusion of these two duplicately-named functions dates all the way back to Lucid Puppy 5.20, when free_coord() was a part of pup_event_frontend_d.

For the next version of my wbar+rox-desktop-drive-icons .pet, I would like to eliminate cruft as much as possible.

Which version of free_coord() is the good one, and which is the cruft?

Good question!

So long ago, I don't know. I have taken a punt and chosen the first (top) one. Mostly because it is simpler.

I wonder what the script does in that situation?

I create a test script to find out. The second function gets chosen.
OK, that settles it, use the second free_coord().

I guess the fact that it has working code for each of the four placement cases should've clued me in.

Thanks for all you do!

PostPosted: Wed 21 Jan 2015, 16:00    Post subject: Possible layering error on Quirky, or in Geany?
Subject description: A consistent fault in dir2pet
 

I am beginning to wonder if there isn't some kind of a layering error on Quirky Unicorn 6.21. Either that or some kind of an error in Geany, or the way files are locked --something of that nature.

I'm a bit puzzled because QU-621 is a full install, and so how do layers have anything to do with it?

But...has anyone else noticed something like this?

Three times now in a row, I have run dir2pet to do a version update on my rox+wbar icons .pet (http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=97297) and, all three times, the resultant .pet which I uploaded has failed to carry the version of the very last file I edited containing the last edit I made. Rather, what gets put in is the version with the next-to-last set of edits.

I was chalking it up to, the first time, the sourcefiles partition's disk not having been fsck'ed recently. And the second time, to absent-mindedness on my part. But the third time in a row, it has now dawned on me that the pattern is consistent.

In all three cases, to create the corrected .pet after noticing that the version I uploaded didn't work right,...I copied over the "correct" version of the last file I edited from the work partition to the dir2pet-source partition, did dir2pet, and when done that way, without Geany being involved except just to check that the latest edits are there, the .pet comes out right.

But...if I just did a save in Geany, with Geany still open, and I copy the allegedly-current file from the work partition to the dir2pet-source partition, and immediately run dir2pet, the current version of the sourcefile which is still up in Geany, and which I have just saved in Geany, *does not* get put into the .pet! --rather, a version which does not contain the latest round of edits I have been just making in Geany. Instead the .pet gets the next-to-last saved version.

I am thinking, this behavior is characteristic of a "fencepost error" (off by one in a while-do count) somewhere in the source code of the layering system...but...there is no layering system in Quirky? So, I guess the fault is in Geany?

I had an issue where dir2pet was not creating a pet but only an sfs. Not sure why and unfortunately, I can't really elaborate. I think something happens when you download the update to QU but again, not sure.

Update:

Here's what I am getting when running petget in one of my QU 6.2 USB's. Note: I am in the correct directory of the pet.

sh-4.3# petget SFS2PET-0.5.pet
tar (child): gzip: Cannot exec: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Anyone have any ideas on this one?

Best,

Slavvo67
